Short Film, Speculative Design

DISCLAIMER: The views and opinions expressed within this video are scripted. All participants are actors and do not necessarily hold the beliefs that are being portrayed for the purpose of the project concept.

This short film demonstrates someone being placed in a position of deceit and instructed to be deliberately misleading to another. To what extent can they be encouraged to lie about their opinions regarding certain moral topics until their conscience steps in? Are they responsible for this betrayal of trust simply by adhering to the rules? As debate ensues, the battle between the manipulative and the righteous becomes essential in discovering the truth within the lies.

Participants: Jack Lowerson & Anitha Sririgavan
